2009 (Junior): Team co-captain along with catcher Jack Monahan … generally toed the slab against the opponent’s top pitcher as the Big Green’s series-opening starter … pitched at least six innings in nine of 11 starts, but his two-inning stint versus Bryant was scheduled to last only that long … gutted out first win of the season after yielding eight runs (only four earned) all in one inning at Penn … tossed a gem against Princeton, allowing just one run on four hits and two walks while striking out a season-high seven batters … came back the next week to defeat the Bears, 5-2, hurling 6.1 innings while surrendering just two runs despite an uncharacteristic five walks … only loss in Ivy play came to the league’s Pitcher of the Year, Yale’s Brandon Josselyn, in a 4-1 setback in New Haven … got a complete-game victory over Harvard, allowing just two runs in seven innings with four whiffs to clinch at least a share of the Rolfe Division crown … won the first game of the Ivy Championship series while tossing 7.2 innings … held powerful Army bats in check over six innings on Sunday, allowing just four hits and no runs with a pair of whiffs, but ended up with no decision … pitched valiantly in the first game of the NCAA Regional against the host, seventh-ranked North Carolina, hurling seven innings while yielding four runs on 11 hits and a pair of walks with five strikeouts … opponents did not score a run off him after the sixth inning (spanning seven total innings pitched).

2008 (Sophomore): Went 3-1 with a 4.72 ERA and two complete games in Ivy League contests ... walked more than one batter just once all season, and did not walk a batter over his final 16.1 innings ... did not get a decision in the 4-3 win over Navy after yielding three runs in five innings ... struck out a season-high nine batters in eight strong innings against Central Connecticut, allowing just one run on six hits without walking a batter ... first Ivy victory came at Cornell, giving up only one run in seven innings on five hits and three walks with six punchouts ... beat Brown by hurling six innings of a 9-7 win, whiffing four ... battled for eight frames against Yale, striking out five while allowing four earned runs of an 11-inning loss ... got the victory against Harvard with his 6.1 innings of work, yielding four runs while fanning three ... came out of the pen to help the Big Green hold off Columbia, 16-15, in the Ivy Championship series.

2007 (Freshman): Third on the team with 49 innings and fourth in strikeouts with 25 as a freshman ... went six or more innings in five starts ... pitched admirably against Big 10 squads Ohio State and Northwestern ... tossed seven strong innings versus the Buckeyes, yielding four runs while fanning four in first collegiate start ... then against the Wildcats, he hurled a season-high 7.2 innings and allowed four earned runs with three strikeouts ... threw seven innings, surrendering four runs on eight hits and struck out a season-high five batters against Cornell ... earned first collegiate win versus Harvard on April 28, going six innings, allowing eight hits and two runs while striking out four.
